Sheraton Manila Bay kicks off Carnival-inspired Christmas lighting ceremony


Sheraton Manila Bay’s ceremonial Christmas lighting event was graced by Manila City Mayor Hon. Honey Lacuna-Pangan, Manila City Vice Mayor John Marvin “Yul” Servo Nieto, and led by hotel General Manager, Richard Masselin. With them are: Plaridelio Adora, Executive Chef; Crystal Monzones, Director of Room; Juvy Agudon, Director of Sales and Marketing; Barangay 699 Chairman Edwin “Amo” Chan; Edna Al Sharhan, Director of Human Resource; and, Jennifer Labita, Director of Finance.

Sheraton Manila Bay marks the start of the yuletide season in whimsical flair with a Christmas lighting ceremony highlighting the hotel’s 16-foot Carnival Hot Air Balloon at the newly refurbished lobby on November 10, 2022.

This year, all Marriott properties in the Philippines unite in a collective celebration of Paskonstelasyon where each Marriott hotels and resort in the country consecutively launched their own holiday festivities with the debut of their symbolic star. The Marriott Bonvoy constellation of stars include the Carnival Star (Sheraton Manila Bay), the Soiree Star (Sheraton Manila Hotel), the Destination Star (Sheraton Cebu Mactan Resort), the North Star (Clark Marriott Hotel), the Vacation Star (Courtyard by Marriott Iloilo), and the Brilliant Star (Manila Marriott Hotel).

Inspired by this year’s theme “Sheraton Manila Bay: The Carnival Star”, the ceremonial event focuses on the lighting of the hotel’s unique 16-foot tall Carnival Hot Air Balloon which symbolizes the promise of travel and mirrors the fun, festive vibe of carnival. It features a velvet gold and red sleigh filled with gifts, circus elements, clowns, Christmas drums, jester bears, and a prominent display of lighted parols mirroring Paskonstelasyon—the Marriott Bonvoy constellation of stars. A myriad of red, gold, purple and blue tones embellish and blend the hotel lobby into an inspiring celebration haven while the Pastry Carnival Tent, styled in similar fashion, are filled with holiday hampers and homemade goodies.

The Community Choir, the hotel’s singing ambassadors, serenaded the attending associates with classic Christmas Carols including the chorale rendition of the official Marriott Holiday Jingle. The hotel’s culinary team also prepared a festive buffet feast complete from ham carving station to holiday-inspired desserts.

Sheraton Manila Bay is accepting order for holiday hampers, grazing boxes, and homemade goodies. Please check the E-brochure for more information about the festive offering or visit https://bit.ly/sheratoncarnivalchristmas for more details
